The Expression of Aries Energy
As the sign concerned with new beginnings, Aries is adventurous, ambitious, impulsive, enthusiastic and filled with energy. The energy of Aries is concerned with overcoming challenges and actively seeks new ideas. It seeks to be at the forefront of everything.
Without conscious awareness it can tend toward impatience, seeking the fastest rather than the best result. Unless there is a constructive outlet for its surplus of energy, aggressive and restless behavior is likely, along with arguments and temper tantrums.
Slowness and moderation on the part of others causes the most conflict and can prompt insensitive and inconsiderate conduct. It can be all too easy to be foolhardy and over optimistic when influenced by Arian energy. However, Aries also offers deep and lasting devotion toward loved ones.
Accessing a higher expression of its energy involves being aware of your pioneering spirit and acknowledging it. In this way, you not only enjoy life more, but you can also avoid being pushed around by others. It’s important to face and transform negative emotions such as resentment, regret or self-pity, because allowing them to take hold would cause the loss of that other Aries trait – straightforwardness.
With greater self control, the stir to action can follow a clear and shining path. Aries needs a cause to fight for – the trick is to ensure that it’s the right cause. The sign of the ram has a little lamb within which encourages us to pause and yield when a more gentle approach offers a better chance for success. It all boils down to knowing the difference between what you can change, and what you can’t.
